Ten starters have been declared for tomorrow's 27th running of the Glen Mills O.J. Caribbean Sprint Championship in honour of the world-famous track and field sprint coach Glen Mills, himself a long-time racing enthusiast.

The race offers a total purse of $1.75 million and is sponsored by Burger King. According to reports, Mills will be on hand at Caymanas Park tomorrow to present the trophy to the connections of the winning horse.

Top contenders for the major share of the purse are hat-trick seeker CAMPESINO, to again be ridden by leading all-time jockey Winston 'Fanna' Griffiths for Hall of Fame trainer Philip Feanny; TRADITIONAL PRINCE (Dane Nelson); ALL CORRECT (Shane Ellis up), who finished a close second to POTCHEEN last year, and his stable-companion POKER STAR (Robert Halledeen), both from the stables of 14-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta.

This race will be run at approximately 3 p.m. as the ninth race on the programme of 13.
